Thanks to Mars Ice Cream for for partnering with us! Our love of all things ice cream is 100% our own.
This TWIX® Milkshake is a creamy blend of ice cream, caramel, and cookie.
Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month and July 19th is National Ice Cream Day? That’s today guys! Don’t miss out on this excuse to celebrate and have a little ice cream…we won’t!
Ever since we threw that little Milkshake and Float ice cream party last month Melinda and I have been kind of obsessed with making milkshakes using Mars Ice Cream products. We’ve used SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars, and M&M’S® Brand Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich (both totally awesome) and this time we around made a TWIX® shake using TWIX® Ice Cream Bars. They are made with vanilla ice cream, gooey caramel and TWIX® cookie bits covered in a delicious chocolaty coating. Just like the candy bar but with the addition of ice cream, yum!
To turn them into a TWIX® milkshake all you need is 2 TWIX® Ice Cream Bars, 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream, and 1/2 a cup of milk. Put the bars and ice cream in a blender and puree while slowly adding milk until you get it to the consistency you like best. I like my shakes thin enough you can easily drink them with a straw, Melinda likes hers a little thicker so you can use a spoon. Finish it off with a drizzle of caramel and you have yourself a drinkable TWIX® dessert!
If you just want to get right down to celebrating National Ice Cream Day without doing any work you can just grab any of the Mars Ice Cream products. They have something for everyone, chocolate-covered DOVEBAR®, TWIX®, MILKY WAY®, and SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars, a soft M&M’S® Brand Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich filled with vanilla ice cream, or their new STARBURST® Brand Sorbet Bars that are light and fruity.
As much as I love chocolate I told Melinda the next one we have to make into a shake is the Strawberry STARBURST® Brand Sorbet Bars. Strawberry is my favorite STARBURST® flavor and I think it would be awesome swirled with vanilla ice cream.
